WESupport International Students

From Elizabeth Arslanoglou ’16:

Are you an international student? Are you facing difficulties in adapting to classes and social life at WES? Do you feel that your cultural norms are different from those in the US? Do you believe that there are many things you just don’t get here? Do you feel homesick? Do you want a group of people similar to you to talk to?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, join us in our New Mental Health Support Group, specifically focused on International Students. The group will be facilitated by trained students who will also be active participants in the discussion. We will be having weekly friendly conversations about issues that concern us, relative to our transition from other cultures into a US college campus. You are not the only one out there facing “culture shock” so come share your experiences and thoughts!

Date: February 23-May 11
Time: 8-9 PM
Place: Memorial Chapel Meditation Room

Yes.

Green alert from Zach Burns ’14:

Looking for free food?! Take it out of our compost bucket. Really though, come learn how we diverted 20,000 pounds of would-have-been trash to hot, steamy goodness last year. This year we have even bigger plans and we need your help! As master Confucius oft proclaimed, “I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.”

Ross Levin ’15 wants to get dirty with you:
Bon Appetit, the food service company at Wesleyan, wonderfully and thankfully provides the Long Lane student-run Farm here with wages for student workers (including work study!).  If you like to play in the dirt, want to learn about growing your own food, or just want to get out from inside the box you’re in or out from behind the box you’re staring at, join us at an informational meeting about these positions (also, come volunteer at the farm every Saturday morning and other times!!).  All levels of experience are encouraged to come, but students who have volunteered at the farm for at least one semester will be given priority.  See you there!
Date: Tuesday, Sept. 10
Time: 8:30 PM, this Tuesday
